I love Black Throated Wind. Too bad about that one.

I find it odd that the songs left out are equally likely to be Bobby songs, even though Bobby is singing. You'd think there would be some mild emphasis on the Bobby catalog. To me (and I'm sure other people) there is at least a certain amount more pleasure to hearing the original singer sing his songs.

Another thing I'm wondering: Why are Brent songs untouched? That might have made some sense when Jerry was alive, but now that Jerry songs are being sung by Bob and Phil and Warren, as are Pigpen songs, why not a Brent song?
